The voice in your head may be wrong

I often hear voices. Don’t worry, it is usually just the sound of my conscience arguing with itself.
At times I hear the voice telling me that I am awesome. This usually comes after some victory or wise insight. Those moments when I have proven myself as a brilliant, successful leader come with a voice of pride and arrogance.
Other times I hear the voice telling me that I am a loser. This usually comes after some defeat or stupid comment. Those moments I have proven myself as a failure and not a very good person come with a voice of despair and depression.
Here is what I am learning: The voice inside my head is very seldom right. I am not that great, nor am I that bad.
In truth, I read the Bible and I listen to God’s word so that I have an unbiased voice speaking to me regularly. I need to be reminded that I am sinful but I am loved in spite of that fact. I need to be reminded that I am sometimes good but not perfect like my heavenly Father.
I struggle daily to listen to the only voice that matters – The voice of God. I hope you do too.
